While I’m focusing more on fashion here on the blog these days, and I have fun putting new looks together, I still spend many days in simple outfits because I’m at home most of the time. I mean, there’s no need to dress to the nines to greet the mailman.
That said, I’m grateful for the accountability of my weekly Daily Mom Style posts over the past few years because they forced me to get out of the yoga pants rut and put a little effort into myself. It really makes a difference in my outlook on life, and I know my kids and husband appreciate the effort as well.
While I won’t keep posting an entire week’s worth of outfits every Wednesday, I plan to keep Wednesdays dedicated to those simple everyday outfits that I wear when I don’t have anywhere special to go. If you’re at home every day as I am, perhaps it will inspire you to take a few extra minutes to put on pants that button and add an accessory or two. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing, you know.
This is a typical daily outfit for me. I wore this casual outfit to my son’s band cavalcade last weekend.
While the daytime weather was lovely, we knew it would be cold in the outdoor stadium that night, so I decided to take my new BearPaw boots for a test drive. These were sent to me from Sole Provisions. They kept my feet cozy and warm all night long, and I was thankful I had them. It did get chilly!
I love the button details. I might have to fight my daughter to keep them. My 12-year-old was eyeing them up, and she wears the same size I do. By the way, these are a size 9. I usually wear 8 or 8.5 but the website advised to size up if you’re a half-size, so I requested the 9 and I’m glad I did. They fit perfectly, especially after I put my orthotics inside to give them more support.
The burgundy sweater came in my last LeTote. You may remember, LeTote is a fashion rental service. If you want to try it, signing up through my link will give you $15 your first month’s subscription. I wore this utility jacket (old; see below for links to similar products) and brought my puffy winter coat along with me just in case. My daughter ended up wearing it, so it’s a good thing I had it!
The jeans are also no longer available, but they’re my super skinny cropped jeans. I love how easily they fit into the boots – no rolling or tucking shenanigans required. If you’re in the market for jeans, ShopBop is having a 25% off Friends & Family Sale, and these are similar. For $169 + 25% off, they are $126.75, and that’s with free shipping. Use the code INTHEFAM25 for the discount!
